SBU StandUp Hosting “Everyone is Gay” November 14

Everyone is Gay, Dannielle Owens-Reid and Kristin Russo

November 14th is National Stand Up Against Bullying Day. Now in its third year at Stony Brook, the SBU StandUp charter is hosting this annual event on Thursday, November 14, at 7 pm in the SAC Auditorium, featuring the world-renowned group Everyone is Gay.

Founded in 2010 by Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid, Everyone Is Gay began as an advice website for all with an emphasis on LGBTQ youth. Through an integration of humor, honesty and pictures of kittens on several social media outlets, Kristin and Dannielle found that they were able to support these youth while keeping them laughing. In 2011, Everyone Is Gay began visiting schools and community centers to reach a larger audience and to continue promoting a message of equality. Everyone Is Gay envisions and works to create a future where people are kind to one another, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity; a future where we allow ourselves to connect across socially constructed divides through laughter and honesty; a future where human equality is realized through accessible, daily acts of change.

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the University Scholars Program, and the Undergraduate College of Leadership and Service.
